Paracord D-Guard

OK so here we go....



First grab a knife with a lanyard hole and a talon hole, and a boat-load of paracord. The talon hole is a registered trademark of Busse, but I've seen a few knives that have the front guard hole (Kiku Matsuda, i.e.) and the guard will only work if there is a front guard hole.



Also about the paracord, I didn't measure mine but I used a lot of extra. You might want to measure out 9' or so. (if you prefer a thinner guard you can take out the strands… Continue

You can tell the person by the knife he owns

Don't you just love all the different types of knives folks own? All you have to do is look around our community to see it is like Baskin Robbins Ice Cream flavors.



Each person collects what they like and I think you can tell a lot about the person by the knife he (or she) owns, just like someone's hands tell you a lot about that person.



I won't try to detail all the different personalities and preferences here in our community, but I do find it very interesting.… Continue

Just another phobia experience...

Yeah, I know we have talked about those "blade-o-phobes" out there that freak out when you whip out your knife.



This happened yesterday.



I pulled out my LITTLE kershaw scallion to cut my friends tag off her notebook....the girl in front of me was like "oooh, you can't have that! that's illegal!" (she is hispanic and has a cute accent, so picture it that way)



I just rolled my eyes and put it back in my pocket.



Well today in my Photography class we were… Continue

Just got word on Wayne Koons Surgery

Here's the message:



Good morning,



Wayne Koons came through his surgery with flying colors yesterday. The surgery lasted 4-1/2 hours and instead of a double by-pass, he had three by-passes completed. He spent the night in ICU and if all goes as planned he should be moved to a regular room today. He's at Baptist East Hospital in Memphis, TN and will hopefully be headed home for a full recovery in a few days.



You can forward your get well cards to NKCA, c/o…

Hey J.T. you got a knife?

When a friend or associate ask if I have a knife. Becuase they want ot open a box, letter, etc... I tell them the only thing my knives are going to cut is the flesh of the idiot, scumbag, or criminal trying to assault and/or jack me!



Sure I know a knife can cut boxes, binding, peel fruit, etc... I NEVER USE MY BLADES FOR THAT PURPOSE!



Am I wrong??? I don't give a rat's @ss they're my… Continue

Jogging Knife

Here's something I was thinking about the other day.



A couple of the actors and crew go jogging to help/stay in shape. Well thank you to the intense Az heat they have started running after the show. Which is 11 or so at night.



Now because of the way my mind works...my question to myself (and out loud) was if there was a knife made for self protection that one could carry while jogging...or biking...or something sport-y like that.



So I asked MY resident Knife… Continue

My Photo

Don't let the picture of this older, not old, just older man fool ya. I'm so stealthy a def elephant couldn't hear me at 50 miles! This was me last summer (2008) waiting for a skunk to come out from under a neighbors shed. I waited about 20 minutes and out it came. Dead skunk! We had a VERY bad problem about 3 years ago, I killed 7 skunks (my total is now 8) that summer in a 2 block area of our neighborhood and the city workers killed another 6. Hence My Forum name. My weapon of choice? An RWS… Continue

Paying it forward.

This is totally off the wall, but it really made my day!

I JUST watched the news and they said that at our local Starbucks (we have like 10, but this one happened to be the one I go to!) someone decided to be nice and pay for the drinks for the person behind them (in the drive through).

It caught on and went on for 34 cars!

34 CARS!?

I love my town!

How nice is that!?

iKC Update 5.7.09

Wow! What can I say? The last two days have been wild here at iKC.



If you just joined us- Welcome and I think if you take the time to connect with some new friends and knife discussions, you will love our community.



If you are an "oldtimer" member here (even though we've only been open for about three weeks), there is no doubt our heads are spinning.



When I started iKC I was all over it. I had a good feel for all that was going on and into… Continue

Does anyone ask you (when they need to cut something) if you have a knife? AND THEY KNOW YOU DO???

This happens to me all the time.



I know its just a question, but its getting pretty annoying.



The people that ask this question know that I carry a knife all of the time, so why not change the question to "can you cut this for me?" or "can I use your knife?"



My boss gives me this one at least once a week. "Nick, do you have a knife?"



I look at him with a funny look and he realizes that what he just asked was a dumb question.



Tell me how… Continue

What is with kids these days?

So I've been making videos on youtube for only a few months (december i think) and i've normally had really good and nice comments so far.



Well, I've had two really rude comments in the past week and I'm started to get a little discouraged.



Today I got one on my Delica review that said, "this is why girls cant do reviews, they stink at it"



So I clicked on this dude's channel...he is like 13 or something. Of course as all haters are...they either don't have… Continue
